An Organized Garden Tool Caddy

I couldn't be more giddy about the fact that the days are getting longer, the sun is shining brighter and the green grass, leaves and fresh blossoms are making their appearance. Love it!

What I don't love, is our current landscaping and garden situation. We have a bit of work ahead of us this year, and I am getting excited to hop in and get dirty. Weeding, planting, digging and gardening. And this current "garden caddy", a.k.a. ceramic planter filled with tools, just isn't going to cut it!

Toting around the planter isn't the safest {could easily slip and break}, and when combined with a huge bag of potting soil in my arms, it is just a recipe for disaster.

So, it was time for a new plan. We dug out an old five gallon bucket...

Filled it was potting soil.
And ordered the cutest little garden apron off of ? have sewing skills, you could totally DIY this at home.

I couldn't wait to fill up all those pockets!

Six large pockets to be exact!
Garden tools, weed picker, sheers, gloves, seeds and flower food... and with room to spare!
I totally adore that I can just toss on the cover and keep this stored in the garage, and the dirt stays nice and fresh. And because it's a bucket with an awesome handle, toting it around the yard from place to place is now a breeze!
Will the apron get a bit dirty? Maybe. But it is washable which is a huge plus.

Day he moved in he was re-organizing the kitchen. I was cleaning out the pantry (which mostly holds tools and garden stuff) to make more room. He opened a bottle of wine to use to make something for dinner and set it on the counter.
Every time he turned around I would reach out of the pantry and grab a drink from the bottle. A couple hours later he gets ready to make dinner, the bottle is empty, and I am in the pantry drunk and crying because everything in the...
